    Mostly stock for now, I have added a cb radio, various cheap mods and I plan on adding aftermarket wheels and other items in the future.
    Could you clarify more? Are you saying your brake calipers stopped working?

    Have you checked to see if it needs new brake pads? Checked the fluid level?

    did brakes about 2 month ago and got new rotors at the same time. i started to feel a vibration in the brakes, so i took everything apart and my passenger side pads where almost wore down and the driver side what barely worn, so i replaced the pads thinking it was faulty pads but soon enough it started over again. second time around i took the caliburs off and sure enough one of the pistons on the driver side was sticking when the pedal was being depressed, and it gradually getting when ever i step on my brakes

    Damn that is not good! lol This goes beyond my expertise.

    The only thing I can suggest is getting new calipers and pads, and also flushing out all of the old brake fluid and putting in new fluid. But I'm not sure exactly what is causing your problem, so hopefully someone can chime in on this and help you out. This may go beyond just the calipers.

    I recently did both front calipers on my '03. I bought remanned ones from O'Reilly's for $55/side with core exchange.

    Have had them on now for about 2 months with no problems.
